(ArcGIS 10.0)
I am using ModelBuilder to create a simple model which will create a feature class in an SDE feature dataset.
My model consists of "Create Feature Class" tool, the feature class location being my dataset.

It always creates the feature class in the root of SDE only. Same behaviour when running script in python.

The help states:
out_path The ArcSDE, file, or personal geodatabase, or the folder in which the output feature class will be created. This workspace must already exist.  Workspace; Feature Dataset

why can't it be created in the feature dataset?
